notes on the remaster

Hello again! Here is a very special treat courtesy of one of my best friends of the last, oh, 25 years, my pal Irin, a professional soundman in Brooklyn, NY. He was kind enough to send this to me, it was taped directly off the radio (WLIR-FM, Garden City, NY) by him in 1984, and it’s a b-e-a-s-t!

All the bootlegs I have ever run across of this performance are all from multi-gen tapes and sound horrifyingly compressed… the one on the Scorpio label (“Wild Weekend”) suffers from a ridiculous amount of compression and contains practically zero high end, whilst the other one I have (remastered by NoSpEx in 2007, I believe, from another source) is also from a mulit-generated tape and suffers from a pervasive clipping & distortion in the low end due to what he described in the notes I saved from that torrent as a faulty original digital transfer over which he had no control.

So, given that the performance contained herein is such an indisputably ripping scorcher, it seems appropriate to finally get this puppy circulating from a bona fide first-generation source, thanks to Irin. In this remaster I stayed away from EQ and noise reduction and whatnot, especially because of the other versions I mentioned where such things are prevalent to the point of intrusiveness. Bottom line is that this tape has survived the last quarter century in terrific shape and I really felt it didn’t need any artificial enhancements, especially since Irin’s transfer was so well-done & tasty to begin with.

All I changed was a few repairs of the isolated static (not too many, maybe twice in the whole show) and some channel dropouts and whatnot. The tape flip (first few seconds of “Both Ends Burning”) was patched using the aforementioned NoSpEx remaster, which I EQ’d paragraphically to get a closer sonic match with the main source (not easy because they were very different-sounding indeed). Hopefully it isn’t too intrusive, but at any rate it’s just a few seconds so no worries.

Someday, a pre-FM master of this will surface… a while back when whoever it was was torrenting all those WLIR masters I was seriously hoping for this one but I guess he didn’t have it, oh well. Until it surfaces this will probably be the best version out there, so give it a spin and see what you think… it’s a massive upgrade over the other versions, at least, IMO.

OK, enjoy, seed away when you are done, and remember we’re here to groove like we mean it and to share like we’ll die if we don’t.

PS–Irin runs a website-with-accompanying-podcast-of-excellence called Ambient Chaser, check him out at http://www.ambientchaser.com early and often, OK?

Thanks of course go to him for taking the time to record & transfer the tape, to Le Musique Roxy for burning down the Calderone like they did and thanks to you for downloading this most stompin’ show.

Reseed Note:

I like my music tagged so i tagged all the files and therefore had to make a new md5 file.
I also added an ffp file.
Other than that the files are untouched and as they came with the original torrent.

Tagged & re-seeded on DAD by surfling april 2010.

All thanks go to Irin for providing and transfering this incredible tape in the first place
and to emperor nobody for cleaning it up and sharing it here originally!

notes from the original uploader:
*taken from circulating AUD > ? > C > DAT > CD source. EQ applied to somewhat improve sound quality and provide better transition into Moore’s master. Moore missed the first two songs due to “audience problems.”

**left channel line distortion on master cassette corrected with right channel blend at 04:12 (one second), 06:28 and
06:29 (under one second each)

***two minor noise blips on the master cassette from 6:07 to 6:09 could not be removed affectively, thus they remain.

There are occasional digital tick like sounds that upon examination in Soundforge did not resemble digital errors. After replaying the master cassettes, they were found there as well. They are more than likely claps from very close to the mics or simply anomalies on the master cassettes themselves. Because it was hard to determine the clap/anomaly truth, they have been left on the final product. These occur only a handful of times throughout the show.

Lineage: Screamer Bootleg CD > WAV > FLAC

Changes Made (Nero 7):

Phase correction of -0.12 msec
– Corrects balance offset of voices
– Clearer sound
Cross-mixed channels (96:4)
– More bass and body to the sound
– Individual harmonising voices now clearly / separately audible
– Neil’s guitar and voice clearer and more to the foreground
Fixed 200+ volume fluctuations in all the acoustic tracks
Reduced the applause volume by -2dB on all acoustic tracks
Increased music volume on all acoustic tracks by +2dB
Reduced left channel by 10% on electric disks to centre stereo image
Evened the different volume levels on different tracks

Quality: Got to be A++

IMHO this is possibly the best NY / CH ever !! The original boot wasn’t well edited, but
with the changes above, it is now truly great. Neil’s guitar is better recorded and more
to the foreground than most so if you like that…

…Don’t miss it !!
